Klaus Schilling

University WuerzburgProfessor and Chair or Robotics and Telematics

Prof. Schilling has taken the fullest advantages of the resources available to him to promote the study of astronautics and related space sciences.

During his entire career he was engaged in visionary aerospace guidance and control problems (in interplanetary missions like Cassini/Huygens or Rosetta, but also for small satellites and satellite formations). He significantly contributed to advance the scientific state-of-the-art. This resulted in an outstanding international career.

By his enthusiasm for space, he was able to motivate students to exceptional achievements (like in UWE-1 or NetSat), which led to outstanding professional careers in aerospace industry and in academia. Particularly his very practical approach to engage students into exciting space research projects with tangible results and actual space satellite launches let him stand out in his field.

During his career he has also made great commitments to the international space community within the framework of the IAF as proven by his long-term engagement in different forums and the awarding of the IAF “Distinguished Service Award”.
